The Diablo Symphony Orchestra is delighted to join forces with Diablo Ballet on April 14 to present a concert the whole family will enjoy. In a program celebrating dance, audience members of all ages will be invited to move - and maybe even clap out loud – to rhythms of the waltz, the polka and Russian folk dance. Dancers will bring cats and unicorns to the stage, and the orchestra will transport imaginations to a village fair with gypsies, masqueraders and a dancing bear. Classic ballet selections featuring dancers from Diablo Ballet include Tchaikovsky’s “Pas de Deux” from Swan Lake and “Puss in Boots” from Sleeping Beauty. Under the direction of Matilda Hofman, the orchestra will perform the universally loved waltz from Sleeping Beauty as well as selections from Igor Stravinsky’s brilliant ballet Petrushka. Capping off the celebration, a surprise guest conductor will lead the orchestra in Strauss’s exuberant “Tritsch-Tratsch Polka”.
